This is our oldest member of the team and it's his 67th birthday today. Some of you might know him, he's Karel Wolters owner of KW Show Ski Equipment.

Wow, looks way out the side! I emailed a buddy who is in you area. I sent him the heli pic and question if he wanted to jump with guys this good. He is a solid heli guy, great footer, ok doubles guy, but mainly a great show skier! I'll stay on him until he comes out to ski!

I Wonder Why They Would Have An Extended Pylon INstead Of A Tower In Their Boat?

The boats are owned by members of the club and the club pays them for use of the boats. It just so happens that none of the boats we use at this time have towers.

Just as a matter of interest, Karel Wolters, the 67 year old man who does the act on the disk makes and sells show ski equipment including the "hylon" on his boat.

He rigged his MasterCraft up to work well for our team. He altered the boat so it has twin props and it can get 22 people off the dock. Our four tier is pulled with his boat. He changed the graphics on the side of the boat to say "Pull Star".

Here is a picture of the props.

Ump, you shouldn't believe that the pyramid is going over the jump. They are on the other side of the jump along with a barefooter who you can't see. :)

For the barefoot pyramid the girl on top lets go and falls off backwards and then the guys on the bottom can wipe out as ungracefully as they find necessary. :D

How about this UMP, can you see where they are in this photo?

I have only HEARD about this boat. Now I finally get to see it

I was really wondering how a MC could pull off a 4 tier like yours

AWESOME JOB AWESOME BOAT

Wow, that is truly impressive!! I bet it tracks amazing!!

That is probably the only inboard that backs up dead straight and does not pull to the right or left!! :D

Here are a couple more pictures so you can see the wake.

By the way, water was really rough because of all shore armor.
